    We express our heartfelt love to RaNae and the entire Jensen family at the passing of your dear husband, father and grandfather. Owen and RaNae were so kind to us and welcomed us to the Maple Valley community and the Lake Wilderness LDS Ward. We know Owen knew the Lord, Jesus Christ and was a faithful disciple. We will all miss Owen, his smile, his wit, his devout testimony and yet know that is doing a great work on the other side of the veil. Thank you for sharing part of your life with us. May God bless you, RaNae and please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. We thank you for our visit this past year. With much love and respect,
    Brad and Dantzelle Allen, Washington, Utah

    When I think of the heroes in my life, Owen Jensen immediately comes to mind. He was a gentle guide to me as I was discovering who I was in my teen years. Thanks for sharing him with so many of us.

    I only had the opportunity to meet Owen shortly before his passing but I could feel the magnificence of his life and the strength of his spirit. His love for his wonderful family was beautiful to see and feel. His greatest concern was for his wife RaNae, being left alone in a new community. In the end, he had everything that truly mattered in this life–a loving relationship with his family!
